Characters Age- Twenty-three

Characters Race- Oserian

Characters Biography (This is where you can get creative. Write down your characters story from birth to present time. Use lore and follow the server timeline, and events. Must be a minimum of 2 paragraphs long)

Oedras was born in 1124. His father, Rineheart, well he was a waste of skin. He has been a fighter in the arena since Leopold ruled, but the man grows weak. By the time Oedras reaches twelve years old his father teaches him to wield a spear. Day and night they train. Oedras was excited to learn and be able to help his family earn money to buy their freedom. His mother Kora was protective and hated Rineheart. They didn't always hate each other but Kora could feel a betrayal.
Oedras finished his basic education at the age of sixteen. He was top of his class academically by far, but he didn't get along well with the other kids. He was picked on by many of them, and as a result decided to lash back. Given he was trained well by his dad he was in trouble for severely injuring other students. Oedras's family was poor and couldn't afford to pay for his education to further and he caused too much trouble for anyone to want to help him.
So he falls in love and decides his education doesn't matter. The girl he falls in love with turns out not to be Paisley, the girl she claimed to be, but a demon thrown out of the heavens by Falen. Towns people hear about the strange behaviour of this girl and label her a witch. Oedras watched as his love was burned alive. Ever since he has been haunted by her, because he did nothing to save her. In fact he gave her up for a reward so his family could live a better life.
Oedras no longer knows where his family is and hopes to join an army and complete his education so he can be someone with reknown.
Character Traits & Ambitions- Oedras is a very cunning, genuine, and brave young man. He is easy frustrated as he wants instant results. He strives for knowledge and skill. Oedras doesn't understand most other people and can seem stupid or offensive at times. He has good intentions and hopes to make those intentions a reality.

Characters Strengths and Weaknesses- Oedras is fast and fit, he can't carry three hundred pounds, but he can move almost as if he wasn't there. his mind is capable of strategizing, planning, architecture, and so much more. However his strength of mind doesn't come without consequence. Oedras can become a pessimist at times and at those times its almost as something dark and heavy looms overhead.

Characters appearance (Be descriptive)-
A deep booming voice echoes off the damp basement walls.
"Oedras, boy! It has been.. too long. i see you've kept going like always. tell me do you have what it takes for revenge?"
Standing in a pool of blood and charred skin was a man who didn't look like much. He wore a vest and one leather glove and his right hand. A long sleeve of rips and blood covered his arms. He held a double sided spear with one end sunk in the head of a bear. His eyes were green, but it was a poisonous green. Something dark was here with him. You could tell it gave him strength. Not physical strength, but a flaming passion and confidence that make you feel scared to be around him. if it wasn't for his filthy brown hair he would only reach a height of five foot nine inches. His smile was sharp on the ends and his lips are full. A smile that makes a man look insane.

Please provide an in game screenshot of your characters skin here…..

Role-Playing Scenarios:
These scenarios will be used in order to test your role-playing abilities. Please answer any 3 of the 4 scenarios listed, and remember to complete these scenarios in as much detail as possible.

[1] Oedras rushes straight toward the spear and over a man sitting on the ground and just before he lands the man catches his leg. Oedras gets pulled into the ground causing him to hit his head and get dizzy. He can hear everyone around him fighting and feels the man who had pulled him down step on his head. Oedras's vision starts to fade. He hears what sounds like flesh being cut and something wet drops on his arm shoulder. the large man on his head falls. Oedras quickly stands now that his vision is of use. A man about the same size stands in front of him.

They both stand still waiting to make a counter move.
Oedras notices his opponents footing is off, but also notices he must have been a soldier judging by his attire.
Oedras speaks, "Now."
Oedras kneels and using his hands as a pivot sweeps his feet against the soldier's. The man drops the spear and steps back to dodge the attack. Oedras catches the spear and swings for his opponent's neck, but he dodges it. The soldier rushes to the wall where someone in the audience tosses him a bow.
Oedras seems to have had a sudden change in personality, "Hahaha, do you think that bow will save you in here?" Oedras rushes his opponent who is up against the arena wall just a few yards away. His opponent knocks an arrow... Oedras ignores the assailants advances and plunges his spear towards the mans gut. The two collide into each other and as Oedras steps back with an arrow in his shoulder, the man drops to his knees grabbing at his chest coughing up blood and lets out a final vomit before falling to the floor. The first life Oedras takes.
Your character finds themselves in the middle of an arena with nothing more than a robe on their back. As you character looks around there is what appears to be a spear on the ground approximately 15 meters ahead of them. They’re not the only person in this arena however, with several others scattered around the arena. Each member in that arena is trying to get that spear. How does you character survive this ordeal?

[2] *Oedras rushes around the corner and sees a woman in a blue dress of the ground and a man in black running away with a jewel in his hand hanging by a chain*
*He kneels next to the woman*
"Are you okay?" Oedras asks.
"My Necklace!"
"Should I retrive it?"
"No... I know who that was," the woman looks up at Oedras "i want you to get revenge for me."
Oedras is struck by her beauty and can't help but do as he is told.
The woman stands with his help and she whispers in his ear. "Come with me."

Returning from the tavern after a long night of drinking, your character passes through the streets and alleyways on the short return home. However, on the way you hear a woman in distress coming from around the corner. The woman is being robbed and is clearly distraught. What does your character do next?

[3] "What makes the bread hallucinogenic?" Oedras asks the vendor.
"Mushrooms, lad! Lots and lots of mushrooms!"
Oedras stares at the vendor a moment, then turns away and leaves.
"I don't have time for this."

On the road going passing from Oseria to Crosia, your character gets lost and ends up at Crookmire Swamp. Although lost, your character decides to stay the night in Crookmire and continue their travels in the morning. After a few hours your character begins to get hungry and heads to a local street vendor. The vendor offers you some baked goods, however warns of out of body experiences if they are to eat this food. What does your character do next, and how do they react to this situation?

[4] Oedras did kneel next to his enemy and placed his hand on his right shoulder.
"Do you want him back?" he asks.
The soldier cries some more before catching his breath and responds with, "Y-y-yes."
Oedras pulls a knife from his ankle and pulls the soldier in with the hand he already had on his shoulder.
"So be it!"
Oedras blade finds its way into the soldiers skull.

In the midst of battle, your character finds themselves next a wounded enemy soldier. The soldier is on the floor, clearly upset as he cradles one of his dead. The soldier then grasps at a cloth and removes it from the dead soldiers pocket. He continues to cry, and starts calling the dead soldier's name is despair. Then the soldier glances up to see your character with sword in hand, but does not care of your approach, continuing to cradle the dead soldier. What does your character do next?

Any extra information you would like to add on your application? [Optional]:
I hope my roleplay example is good, I thought it was hard to roleplay this given that no one was making actions back during the fight scenes so I tried to show my characters traits. One of them being loyalty. i tried to give examples of actions, dialogue, and moments where i would have to wait for a response so i wouldn't show case any power-gaming. I would also like to say I am decent at building and would love to learn more from you guys! I ask that my short biography is accepted as I have been working on this character a long time and the story is still in progress. I hope I've shown I am capable enough to start playing despite the situation.

Hello, I am NTE and will be reviewing your application today!

Your application has been put on.. PENDING.
  • Please try to keep the rp scenarios given separate from your backstory. I would like for you to describe more of his adult life.
  • The scenario 1 should be like how you did the other scenarios. Instead of being emotes encased in *'s, play your character as if it was being read from a book.

Those are the only issues I see in the application. Please fix them within 48 hours, failure to do so will result in DENIAL of your application. If Denied, you will have 24 hours to wait until posting another application.
